After a few years of song writing I'm finally putting these original tracks to disc. I'm looking for help from family, friends and fans
My name is Bryan Frates and I am a singer/songwriter originally from Vermont. I now live in Utah and over the past 5 or so years have been building my own song catalogue. I have recorded some of them before but was not proud of the outcome due to lack of time, money and prep. Now I am determined to produce a product that I am extremely proud of that I can share with the world and I need your help!
In the process of recording my album and doing it 100% independent of any record label. Like I said before, I am working hard to put out something that I am very proud of and right now I am trying to raise money to help fund the album without having to go into debt.
Producing a CD without a record label is extremely expensive if done correctly and professionally. So the money graciously donated will be going directly to:
- Studio time
- Paying professional musicians to play on my tracks
- The Mixing and Mastering process
- Printing and packaging of the album
- Artwork for the cover and disc
- A mini tour to promote the album once it is finished.
- Marketing and promotional swag
- High Quality videos
- Much more that goes into the process
My goal is to raise $4,000 for the album. Total the Album will cost between $6,000 and $8,000 but $4,000 would be a great start! If I raise 4,000 or more then kickstarter will send me a check for your generous donations. Here is the catch: If the project does not succeed in reaching its funding goal of $4,000 no one is charged and I will receive no funding for the album.
Thank you for taking the time to watch and research my project. I hope you will soon hear my new CD and share it with all of your friends and family members.
